PURPOSE Thermal injury during implant bed preparation has a major influence on implant osseointegration and survival. This study investigated the effectiveness of the temperature of the saline solution used for heat control during drilling. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fresh frozen edentulous segments of bovine mandibles were sectioned into 12 x 6 cm pieces.(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to analyse the outcome of 44 cases of vertical alveolar distraction osteogenesis (ADO) and to investigate the complications, precautions, and treatment associated with ADO. The 44 alveolar distractions were performed on 40 patients. Extraosseous distraction was used in all cases. Complications associated with the(More)
In the oral cavity, lymphangioma is a rare, non-odontogenic, benign neoplasm which originates from lymph vessels. This lesion is common in the first decade of life and mostly occurs on the dorsal surface and lateral border of the tongue and rarely arises on the palate, gingiva, buccal mucosa and lips. Treatment of the lesion is surgical excision, however in(More)
Historically, pulp-necrotizing agents were commonly used in endodontic treatments. They act quickly and devitalize the pulp within a few days. However, they are cytotoxic to gingiva and bone. If such an agent diffuses out of the cavity, it can readily cause widespread necrosis of gingiva and bone, which can lead to osteomyelitis of the jaws. Although the(More)
Zygomatic implants have been used for dental rehabilitation in patients with insufficient bone in the posterior upper jaw, due to, for example, tumor resection, trauma, or atrophy. Zygomatic implants are an alternative to complex free or vascularized bone grafting and distraction osteogenesis. A 42-year-old male patient with a severe defect in the right(More)
Peripheral ameloblastoma, a rare and unusual variant of odontogenic tumour, comprises about 1% of all ameloblastomas. The extraosseous location is the peculiar feature of this type of tumour, which is otherwise similar to the classical ameloblastoma. An additional case of this infrequent tumour is described on the lingual alveolar mucosa of the right(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of sedation and general anesthesia for surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). METHODS This randomized prospective study included 30 patients who were scheduled for SARPE, and was performed between January 2008 to February 2010 in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, Marmara(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the treatment of class II malocclusion by sagittal advancement of the alveolar bone in the symphyseal area using an intraoral archwise distractor device and to determine the effects of this method on the dentoalveolar complex. Fifteen patients (10 female, five male) aged 16-20 years with a class II division 2(More)
OBJECTIVES Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a rare form of neuropathic facial pain characterised by severe paroxysmal pain in the face. The treatment for trigeminal neuropathic pain disorder continues to be a major therapeutic challenge, as relief provided by medical therapy generally decreases over time. When medical therapy fails either due to poor or(More)
Severe bone loss due to pathology in the maxillary tuberosity region is a challenging problem both surgically and prosthetically. Large bone grafts have a poor survival rate due to the delicate bony architecture in this area and presence of the maxillary sinus. Our case presentation describes a new technique for reconstructing severe bony defect in the(More)
